Love Reno? So do we. ShortStack is a home-grown B2B SaaS located in downtown Reno. We offer 4-day work weeks, flexible PTO, a stocked kitchen, and a supportive team environment. Oh, and a beer fridge, don’t forget the beer fridge.

ShortStack is a B2B SaaS company with over 12 years of success. Our online contest marketing product caters to customers of various sizes, including nationally-recognized brands and enterprise customers. Most of our customers are self-serve, but we also offer custom builds.

Because the company is small, there is only one boss (who is also an engineer) and no managers. This means there is no corporate ladder to climb (or fall from). 

We work hard. We have fun. Our employees love working here. Our office is located in downtown Reno, a block from the Truckee River and within walking distance of bars and restaurants. Both the building and our office are dog-friendly. 

At ShortStack, we believe in work-life balance, so we have adopted a 4-day workweek. That means you’ll work Monday to Thursday only (~ 32 hours per week), so you can look forward to 3-day weekends. Monday is a work-from-home day and Tuesday through Thursday we work in the office. 

As a software engineer at ShortStack, you’ll touch every component of our cloud-based service and help adopt new technologies. You’ll work with databases, server-side code (Rails), front-end code (mostly Vue), DevOps, security, scalability, debugging and troubleshooting.
